The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office found and arrested a man wanted in Vilas County for two counts of sexual assault of a child.

The suspect had a warrant for his arrest after his bail was revoked.

He had cut off his electronic monitoring ankle bracelet and threw it away in Rhinelander.

A Lincoln County deputy found the man traveling through the Town of Pine River, near Merrill.

When more police were called to stop the man, he fled.

After a chase, deputies caught the suspect in Marathon County.

They turned him over to a Vilas County deputy north of Tomahawk. He’s now in custody.
